the Importance of
Firehouse Center for the Arts, Newburyport Massachusetts, November 2018
Set Design by David Stawasz

My first show as resident designer at the Firehouse!
The advantage of a play like "Earnest" is that with so few locations and scenes, each moment can be sculpted. I designed long (long!) crossfades into the entire show, so that the light was constantly shifting. LED Lekos with window gobos broke up the playing space and gave the audience the time of day.
